I've developed a marketplace around wooden sunglasses and watches. Its a growing trend which is why I wanted to be apart of the action. I did pretty well the first couple of months as well as during the holiday season. Watches sell well during Christmas while sunglasses look to be strong during the summer months. Go figure its the classic cyclical trend. You can also see the trend via Google Trends.
I've also made around $3000 in offline sales that isn't shown in this store. I purchased the products and sold them in person. In fact Facebook Marketplace was the best advertising I've ever had and its free. That's why online sales look bad toward the end of the year because I was getting more hits selling the products in person. It was a little time consuming. But if I buy for $30 and sell for $60. Then I'm making 100% gross profit. And I would meet up with 5-6 in the same location in a given day.
Currently, margins are set around 60%. It can vary if you want to run discounts to promote and sell more units. It is also a drop ship business. And with some automation the logistics were simple. I can explain the process after this site is purchased.
Now that I have a baby I do not have the time to continue on Wooden Classics. But I really want to, I just know my importunity cost inst here.
I'm willing to provide additional support after the website sale to help grow the business. A couple hours/week just until you see consistent sales.
